TX:Local Gun Rights Activists Demonstrate Right to Openly Carry Firearms in Light of Nevada Standoff

It is about much more than simply refusing to pay a fee.  All the other ranchers in the area have been driven out by the Federal government.   It is about a clear overeach by a corrupt government.

A Nevada rancher made headlines after he refused to pay a fee to graze his cattle on federal land.

He's backed by many supporters including people right here in the Permian Basin.

Stand for Freedom Permian Basin is a group of demonstrators who hit the streets of Odessa every Sunday afternoon to show citizens that they are fully within their rights to openly carry firearms.

And after the weeklong standoff in Nevada, this issue is at the forefront of their minds.

If you're driving around Odessa on a Sunday afternoon, you're likely to see Jeff Clower and supporters standing on the side of a busy street, a rifle slung over his shoulder.

He says it's a constitutional right and he wants people to understand that.
